Motorist in hospital after two-car crash


A motorist was taken to hospital after the car they were driving was in a collision with another vehicle, and then left the road.

Police were called to the scene, on the A46 slip road, near Anstey, at about 12.40pm on Tuesday last week.

The crash - which happened where traffic from Gynsill Lane, Glenfield, and Anstey Lane, Beaumont Leys, enters the Leicester Western Bypass heading towards the M1 - left one person trapped in a vehicle.

The road was closed for more than an hour during the rescue and recovery operation, causing delays and congestion in the area.

A spokesman for Leicesters­hire Police said one of the drivers was taken by ambulance to Leicester Royal Infirmary. Their injuries are not believed to be either life-threatenin­g nor life-changing, he added. No other injuries were reported.

Crews from Birstall and Leicester’s Western fire station also attended the incident.

A spokeswoma­n for the fire service said: “We received the initial call at 1.02pm, to a road traffic collision involving two cars, with one person trapped, in Gynsill Lane, Glenfield.

“Upon arrival, crews confirmed both cars were on four wheels, with one of the vehicles having left the carriagewa­y and one occupant trapped inside. A stop message was received by fire control at 1.52pm, confirming the casualty was being transporte­d to the Leicester Royal Infirmary.”

The slip road was cleared and reopened at about 2pm on July 27.
